• Military Aviation The F4 Phantom Flight

    In between my flying courses I would hold on the Fast Jet Squadrons and run the Operations Desk, hard work but it got me out there. I was very lucky to get a flight in the F4 Phantom in Cyprus whist the Squadron where on Armament Practice Camp, essentially shooting the guns on moving targets towed by the mighty Canberra. Going vertical in the Phantom is one of those amazing experiences, your soon through 10,000 feet and climbing, a truly wonderful experience.   This is me in my Flying Kit, Bone Dome Helmet, Flying  Suit and G Pants, looking pretty cool.
